Route import and convert

Post by Kramer »

Hi there :)

i hope someone is able to help with this issue ??

when i import a gpx route in the 595 i get it in "tracks" .. no problem with that .. i covert it to a route and wait ....
then the problem accours ? i always choses fastest,shortest etc .. and change the original route ... is it not possible to just import a route and drive it ?

the routes is for adventure motorbike and i get it from the TET site.. the are routes made for offroad track all over the world , but when i want to drive it always calculate the route :oops:

i can chose tracks and show on map ,but the line is so small and hard to see , and i have to possibility to change color but not make the line bigger

HELP

What I do:

I import the .gpx file NOT to the 595 but rather to Base Camp. Most show up as a track which I use Base Camp to convert to a route and edit it as I wish it to be. I then transfer that route to the 595, import it and ride it.

So you just import route and not track to the 595?
And it os ready to ride without the gps calculations..

I will try tomorrow and see if it works..
I was wondering why it’s not possible on the zumo when it is on the Montana and other gps.. even the Garmin for mountain bike gps ….

Thanks a lot 🙏🏻

Correct, I import a route to the zumo from base camp, not a track. Most .gpx files i see are tracks and to me it much easier to convert and edit in base camp than it is on the zumo.
